A newly transplanted plant enjoys the new soil-
its roots go deeper and deeper
every time it's transplanted, every time it's traumatized by a change in the weather.

It's the order of things.
Live fully or die.
You can get up and make yourself a quick meal right now, thanks to your ancestors who invented the refrigerator, a way to shelter you from storms, and a way to grow food right outside that shelter so you'd never go hungry. (And innumerable variations on storing, transporting, modifying food sources and food consumption.)
You have had millions of others think ahead for your comfort and joy today.
Are you thinking ahead for those others who'll come after you, for their comfort and joy?
What are you doing today?
